The tucan who woke us up, knocking on the door at our lodge in Delta Orinoco. I don't know the specific type, so please help me identify it! This is my first picture here at trek nature.

Hi Jorunn, Welcome to TN.
How funny it was knocking at your lodge door. Maybe it wanted a handout.:-) This is a White-throated Toucan and you can read about it here...
Unusual POV coming from above. The Toucans I've seen are usually high in the trees. You aceived good color and mostly good focus detail.
The white throat is a bit OE.
Must have been a treat to get so close. TFS

Beautiful colours displayed in this toucan and an interesting pose he is in! I like the glossy quality of his feathers and the grain you can see in his perch. A shallower depth of field perhaps would have been nice to focus more on the bird as the background is drowning him out a little. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jorunn,
Nice shot as a first post, but the white color on the neck is a little overexposed!
